Year 4

Welcome to Year 4


Our teacher is Miss Beresford and our teaching assistant is Miss Fox.


This term in Maths we will be focussing on decimals, percentages and their equivalent fractions and we will revise mental and written methods for the four operations (Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division). We will estimate, compare and calculate different measures, calculate the area and perimeter of simple shapes, compare and classify 2D and 3D shapes and solve calculations involving Roman numerals. The children will also encounter regular problem solving activities that will require them to be resilient and systematic.

In English, the children will be developing their sentence structures and vocabulary choices through their creative writing before moving on to performance poetry and persuasive writing techniques.  


Our Science topic involves sorting mini-beasts into classification keys before looking at the effects of human impact on our environments. In P.E we will be doing cricket and athletics whilst in Computing we will continue with our I-movie projects before making our own web pages using HTML. In Music, the children will be introduced to a range of singing games before composing their own. In Art, they will look at surrealist artwork before creating their own using ICT and in DT they will be designing and making pop-up cards. In History, we will be studying the rule and reign of Elizabeth I and the impact she made on the country. In French the children will be introduced to new vocabulary linked to travel and transport and in PSHE the children will have the opportunity to discuss changes that they might experience such as starting a new school or moving house. They will think about how these changes make them feel and come up with solutions for coping with change. We also have weekly Philosophy for children (P4C) lessons that involves having an open discussion about a specific question.




P.E- Our P.E days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. One of our sessions will be outside this half term so make sure you have the correct kit.


Reading books- Reading records should be handed in every Monday regardless of whether you have finished your book or not. Reading books can be changed throughout the week.


Spellings- Weekly spellings will be sent home on Thursdays. You should practice them daily. You will then be tested on them the following Thursday. 


Times Tables- As well as practicing Times tables in school, you should also be practicing them at home at least three times a week. This can be done on Times Table Rock Stars, Hit the button, writing them out and reciting them orally.


Active Learn- As part of your Maths homework you will be set online games on Active Learn. If you have lost your login details let me know and I will reset them for you :)
